Bio

Melbourne band Eternal Crush are made up of ethereal vocalist Joey Jean and guitarist Jackson Holliday. Holliday, who makes up a sixth of Northeast Party House, first heard Jean singing in a friend’s Instagram story and the pair began collaborating via email. They formed Eternal Crush, finding harmony writing together, with Jean singing and Holliday playing guitar.

An early demo found it’s way into the Outpost office’s weekly meeting and by Friday the pair had been offered a management deal. Enter homegrown producer Gab Strum AKA Japanese Wallpaper. Gab joined the project in March 2019 to produce the first EP.

Lucifer is the first track from their narrative driven debut EP, inspired by a mutual love for the Drive soundtrack. The music is dreamy and 80’s influenced - as Jean puts it “Eternal Crush is pop music, quite simply and quite obviously”. “Lucifer is about when love turns ill, a relationship with a sort of Stockholm Syndrome dynamic and feeling doomed to sink with that ship”

Something very dark and sexy about this. That voice up against the sparkle in the synth carries this gorgeous deep drama and emotion. It's hard to get away from it. Stunning debut! In loveeeeee.

Lana Del Rey but make it 80s! Love those twinkling synths in the chorus. Can't wait to hear more!

I'm just a boy, sitting at a desk, listening to a song, asking everyone to love it just as much as I do.
